Malema to appear in court over land grab statements
EFF leader Julius Malema faces criminal charges for calling for land grabs which contravenes the Riotous Assemblies Act.
Malema faces criminal charges for calling for land grabs which contravenes the Riotous Assemblies Act.
The act is the prohibition of engendering feelings of hatred based on race in public spaces.
Malema will appear in court this morning for contravening this act after he told EFF members at the party's 2014 elective conference to occupy land.
Two years later, Malema again told KwaZulu-Natal supporters in Newcastle to grab land, saying it belonged to black people.
Malema has already appeared in the Newcastle and Bloemfontein courts but the cases were postponed pending his legal challenge that the act should be declared unconstitutional.
